Recent Tribe Of Astronauts Releases
Some recent "Tribe Of Astronauts" releases of note:
"Missive 2": "Missive 2" is a longform remix of the underground ambient hit, "Remote Missive" ( www.webbedhandrecords.com
). Like the original, it is based on space travel, and the idea of taking personal objects on space trips-- contraband. This practice has been widespread, apparently, though not condoned by authorities. In this mix, emphasis has been placed on texture and stereo effect. The Tribe hope you enjoy it.
"Constant 8": The original "Constant" was created by mystified for Webbed Hand Records ( www.webbedhandrecords.com
). It was a longform track that was in essence one extended drone sound, though full of interesting artifacts and harmonics. This piece was re-created in different ways by several artists of the TZP Drone Company NetLabel. They took up the idea of creating a more or less constant sound that could be listened to for extended periods of time.
Now Tribe Of Astronauts have taken up the challenge, and have created the 8th "Constant". Though shorter than some, this piece is still 30 minutes long and has 3 main parts.
"Rain 3": Tribe of Astronauts'"Rain 3" is a symphony in drone, recorded on a very windy day. The listener is transported in a place of wide and profound resonance.
Rain is a series of conceptual CDs produced under the auspices of Webbed Hand Records. Each Rain is a CD-length ambient recording ideal for listening to while relaxing, working, or socializing. Typically the recordings in this series are minimalistic soundscapes, with motifs played out cyclically and repetitively, rather than progressively, in order to induce relaxed states.
Note: The inscrutable Tribe of Astronauts is a collective of varying number. Little can be known about the Tribe of Astronauts because they hide behind digital masks.
